Pilot Knob Lutheran Anna the Witness 12/31/2023
At the temple on the day of dedication was an elderly prophetess, Anna who prayed, fasted, and worshipped God for many years. She too was privileged to see the savior and hear the message of Simeon. Overjoyed she could not keep the message to herself, but like the shepherds forty days prior, she told everyone she could. Luke 2:38b Coming up to them (Mary & Joseph) at that very moment, she gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to all who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem.During this post advent season, we need eyes like Simeon to see Jesus for who he is and how he is working around us and in us. We also need to be like Anna, even though she was in her 90’s told everyone that would listen about Jesus. May we keep gifts, parties and holiday food secondary and Jesus the primary focus.Pr. Bob Snitzer
